We feel external space also available as part of the living space due to   moderate level difference by between south garden/terrace 1/terrace 2/dinning. As for even inside the house, similar to outside by the split-level with a moderate level difference, it will be the space to feel the sign of life.

It was consideration to ensure the thermal environment and the private space by north and west side facing the road is covered with almost wall. We feel pleasant breeze due to windows takes up north-south side and the warm air discharged to upper space by skip floor and stairs without riser.
